USAccess Release 18.0 Information

USAccess system release 18.0 is tentatively scheduled for Production the weekend of June 20-21, 2020. The Release Notice was distributed and posted to the Agency Lead Portal (ALP). Most of the system enhancements are related to the transition to V8.1 PIV cards. The release includes the following changes:

  • Set V7 PIV card expiration date to align with the OMB-mandated date of June 30, 2024
    • USAccess will prevent new V7 cards from having an expiration date beyond June 30, 2024.
    • USAccess will not allow issuance of V7 cards after January 1, 2024. Sponsors will need to select the V8.1 PIV card body type after this date.
  • Support V7 or V8.1 PIV Card Type at Agency, Sub-Agency and Applicant Levels
  • Quarterly Update of Installers for Light Activation (LA) and Mobile Credentialing Units (MCU)
    • Note: The LA and MCU installers will not have full functionality if installed earlier than the release weekend. More information will be provided in the upcoming LA and MCU Release Notice.
